PUNT USED FREQUENTLY
The Maroou and Gold eleven lost to
Lyncliburg last Saturday, • twelve to
nothing. The game was played on an
ideal day and both teams seemed to
feel the urge of thei weather. Despite
the fact that there was some real foot
ball played by both teams the game
proved to be rather slow throughout.
Both teams had to resort to the punt
frequently. Lynchburg scored first
early in the first perio'd, from a for
ward pass. After this the Elon team
stiffened and the Lynchburg offense
never again regained its original driv
In the fourth quarter there was en
acted a very odd bit of football. Elon
punted from her own territory and the
Lynchburg safety man fumbled, giving
Elon the ball on their thirty yard line.
Time was getting short and Elon elect
ed to pass. Carpenter, fast Lynchburg
halfback, intercepted t^ie pass and
scored a touchdown from where lie
The game was full of good football
and both teams showed a fighting spirit

Reports from college publications, and

He: “Je t’adore.”
She: “Shut it yourself.”
The violin playing of Helen Ware at
her recital in Whitley Auditorium on
Tuesday evening was of the highest
oTder. Her program contained some
of the most difficult numbers in violin
literature but technical difficulties do
not seem to exist for her. A smooth
ness of tone and clearness in the rapid
passages were outstanding character
istics of her playing. Her playing was
distinguished more by non-balance than
by exaggeration and at times one long
ed for a bit moTe dash.
Highlights of the program were the
Romance from the Wieniawski Con
certo, her own Canary and Wildbird
and the Carmen Fantasy arranged by
Her encores were very well selected
and received the hearty applause of the
audience. As encores she used a Ger
man Waltz by Hummel, an arrange
ment of Carry Me Back to Old Vir
ginia by Bland, a Brahms Waltz and a,
little Cradle Song, written by herself.
The singing of Miss Avery was not
up to the standard set by Miss Ware.
Both violonist and singer were accom

Demo'cracy may be stabbed to death
in its universities.
Everything depends upon the kind of
universities a democracy develops.
Universities that teach their students
WHAT to think are a danger to demo
cracy. Universities that teach their
students HOW to think and then trust
them to decide what to think from year
to year in a growing world are demo
cracy’s one indispensable safeguard.
The university is not a retail store
dealing in facts; the university is a
temporary retreat from the world
where young men and women may
breathe the air of freedom and achieve
emancipation from the obsolete dog
mas, the unworthy loyalties, the irra
tional inhibitions, the tribal conformi
ties, and the cowardly precautions that
crush and kill the uneducated mind.
May I repeat that if the university
attempts to safeguard popular thought
by teaching the students what to think
instead of how to think the university
becomes the betrayer instead of the
saviour of democracy. Trying to run
a university with a set of changeless
doctrines instead of with courageous
and creative minds is like sending a
child into life equipped with book
maxims instead of character.

Score. Cox Stars For The
On Tuesday afternoon the Burlington
High School team was supposed to
come and play the Bear-Cats o'n Comer
field but due to some misunderstanding
they did not come. In order not to
disappoint the students who had come
to the field and to give the Bear-Cats
a try-out. Coach Corboy matched them
against the varsity. The game proved
to be interesting despite the difference
tliat is supposed to exist between the
two teams. The scrubs succeeded in
holding the varsity and the referee to
the small score of 14 to 7.
The outstanding feature of the game
was a fifty-yard run by “Tubby” Cox.
He picked up a varsity fumble near
the middle of the field and raced near
ly to the goal line before he was
brought to earth. Other features of
the game were a lack of fight on the
part of the varsity and the scrapping
spirit of the Bear-Cats. The Bear-
Cats have consistently shown more
fighting spirit this year than has the
varsity. The scrub team has played
two teams as much out of their class
as any teams that the varsity has run
up against and they have been scored
on only’ four times.
THE AMERICAN FARMER
Things were going well for the World
Court last Wednesday until Prof.
Burney threw a monkey wrench into
the machinery wliicli A. K. Moore and
Henry Peel had set in operation. The
occasion of this mix-up was the
Armistice Day service here when the
Elon student body was asked to vote
on fonr proposals concerning the Per
manent Court of International Justice.
The proposals were as follows:
(1). United States participation un
der the Harding-Hughes plan. .(The
United States not to be connected with
the League of Nations or bound to any
obligations under the League Covenant;
not to be bound to advisory opinions
not voluntarily submitted by the Unit
(2). United States participation un
der the “Harmony Plan” of thirty
peace leaders. (United States to join
the Court under the Harding-Hughes
plan but to withdraw after five years
unless international law has been co'di-
fied, outlawing war and giving the
(3). United States participation un
der the Borah plan. (The United States
not to join the Court until international
law lias been codified outlawing war,
and the Court given jurisdiction; the
Unjited States not to be thereby con
nected with the League of jJ^ations.)
(4. United States not to participate
in the World Court at all.
Prof. T. E. Powell had charge of the
services. He read the proposals and
introduced the speakers.
Mr. Moore spoke first, declaring that
he believed proposal No. 2 to be the
one which the United States should
accept. The United States has taken
a dominant part in attempts to estab
lish such a court and American sol
diers in the World War poured out

Misses Lillie Horne and Marie Nobles
were the Elon delegates to the State
Christian Endeavor Convention, which
met at Chapel Hill, N. C., November
14 and 15. Saturday afternoon the
delegates arrived, registered and were
sent to different homes. Saturday eve
ning a most delightful party was given
in the entertainment ro-oms of the Pres
byterian church. Attractive souvenirs
were given so that all might remem
ber the social.
Sunday morning a special address
was given on “The Work of Christian
Endeavor,” by the Dean of the Uni
versity of North Carolina. At eleven
o’clock Dr. J. O. Atkinson, of Elon
College, gave a very interesting lec
ture, concerning the young people of
Sunday afternoon the pastor of the
Chapel Hill Christian church gave a
short talk. Then Miss Pattie Coghill,
of Henderson N. C., led a most in
teresting and helpful discussion of the
young people. Professor S. L. Bennett,
of Elon College, also gave a talk which
added to the interest of the program.
Before the meeting was over a mo
tion was adopted which gave the Chris
tian Endeavor the right to organize a
convention separate and apart from the
Sundav school convention.
PLAY EMORY AND HENRY
Vrginians Are Apparently Evenly
Matched With Elon
A football team from Emorv and
Henry College comes here next Satur
day. The only eleven which both
Emory and Henry and Elon have play
ed this year is Lynchburg. Lynchburg
won over Elon 12 to' 0 andi forced the
Emory and Henry aggregation to bite
the dust by a 13 to 0 score. Last year
Elon lost at Emory, Va., while the year
before we came out victorious on our
home field. Lenoir-Rhyne has defeat
ed the Virginians this year 13 to- 10.
From the comparative scores it would
seem that the two teams are about
evenly matched. Yet the game is to
be played on our home field and the
Maroon and Gold squadron is smarting
under several consecutive defeats. Al
though King’s Mountain Tornado and
Duke’s Blue Devils were both held to
6-0 scores, so far Elon has succeeded
in winning from Guilford alone. The
Fighting Christians will bend every ef
fort to be the victors Saturday and
to chalk up another game on the debit
side of their ledger.
Elon will be handicapped by the loss
of Harrell, sterling backfield man. An
injured knee, resulting from the Lynch
burg contest, will keep him out of the
game. It is very doubtful whether the
injuries of Brown and Byerly will be
sufficiently healed to permit them to
get into the fray.
MUSIC ARE DISCUSSED
Prof. Velie Explains Both to Music
Lovers’ Club. Four Members
The Music Lovers’ Club o'f Elon Col
lege held its regular session Monday
night just preceding the concert of
Helen Ware, violinist, on Tuesday eve
ning. At that time _ Professor C. J.
V’elie, head of the music department of
the college, and president of the Music
Lovers’ Club, gave a most interesting
talk on the history and construction of
the violin, and an explanation of the
numbers to be played by Miss Ware
the following evening.
Professor Velie illustrated his talk
by piano selections, and played a typical
Hungarian selection by Liszt, The 8th
Rhapsodie. Miss Pauline Shoop, who was
alsc to appear on the program to illus
trate the tones and particulars of the
violin, was ill and could not be pres
Miss Ware in her concert Tuesday
night especially delighted her audience
with the Hungarian dance melodies.
“Carmen Fantasy” by Bizet-Hubay
was an especially appreciated number
on her program.
At the regular meeting of the club
four new members were received, Mr.
and Mrs. R. M. Rothgeb, Miss Hattie
Brown, and Mr. R, H. Gunn being elect
ed to membership.
One item of importance was passed
on at that time, the sponsoring o'f the
Sunday evening vesper services by the
Club. A committee was appointed to
have in charge this service and to make
all arrangements for it.
